BD U-19s hunt maiden title

Bangladesh will look to become first-time champions of the ongoing Asian Cricket Council Under-19s Asia Cup when they take on India in the final at the R. Premadasa Stadium in Colombo today.

The match is set to get underway at 10:30am Bangladesh time.

Both Bangladesh and India made it through to the final following first-place finishes in their respective groups while their respective semifinal encounters were washed out.

So far, Bangladesh have remained unbeaten in the tournament, having clichéd comfortable vistories against the likes of UAE, Nepal and hosts Sri Lanka.

India have also been in fine fettle and just like their Bangladeshi counterparts, the side have to be beaten in the tournament.

Batting has been the strong suit for both teams so far with India’s Arjun Azad leading the most runs chart with 202 at a staggering average of 101 and a high score of 121 in three matches. Meanwhile, Bangladesh top-order batsman Mahmudul Hasan Joy is a close second with 193 runs to his name from three matches.
